Breakfast of champions…

Back home in Missouri I grew up with apple, peach and cherry trees.  I never saw an orange on the tree until I was an adult driving through Florida with the kids to Disneyworld.  But in Arizona grapefruit, orange and lemon trees seem to be everywhere and by that I mean not just on a farm but in the yards of residents.  How nice must it be to have your own citrus tree right there in your yard.

I pestered my mother in law at their RV camp to introduce me to one of their neighbors so I could pluck a grapefruit from their tree.  She finally gave in and as you see here, I had plenty to pick from and enjoyed it for breakfast.  The next day while walking through the camp we came upon another neighbor with these huge lemons growing on a tree in their front yard.  Guess who stuffed four huge lemons into her carry on bag for the flight home 😉

Those were the best smelling and tasting lemons ever.

    It’s amazing! We have a lime tree in a planter. But some of these trees are huge and full of fabulous fruit! Glad you got to partake!

    Like you, Teri, I didn’t see any citrus au naturel until I was an adult. Unlike you, I never did get a chance to pick any. Would love to have tasted one so fresh.
